Skip to comments.Mitt Romney implicated in perjury and stock fraud, made millions in process (This is their scandal?)

Mitt Romney has been implicated in a complex case involving perjury, stock manipulation, and possibly consumer fraud.
Mitt Romney lied in the divorce proceedings of his wealthy friend, Tom Stemberg, founder of Staples, according to a story by radaronline.com. At least that is what Stemberg's former wife, Maureen, says. She is a MS patient who says her husband was so vindictive he even cut off her health insurance. Unfortunately the records for this case have been sealed, and participants are unable to discuss them. Other forces are in motion to lift the gag order.
It is a matter of public record that Mitt Romney went on the stand claiming that Staples as a business was "overvalued." He also specifically said:
I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future.
Because of Romney's testimony the court valued the corporation at a paltry percentage of its actual worth, and Maureen Stemberg was granted a tiny settlement.
Meanwhile, weeks after the divorce was finalized, Mitt Romney and his buddy Tom Stemberg sold their shares of Staples to Goldman Sachs and made millions in the process.
This is a case in a long line of cases that show a side of Mitt Romney's business ethics that he does not want the American people to know about.
FIVE MILLION DOLLARS and a luxury apartment are a tiny settlement? Hahahahaha!
Current TV? Isn’t that where Al Gore went after his rape accusations?
Current TV. Isn’t this that moron, Algore’s, freak show?
Current TV = Al Gore TV
Obama sleeps through an ambassador getting raped and murdered and then jets off to a fund raiser with rappers,and the libs throw a TWENTY FIVE YEAR OLD divorce case at us?????????
OH MY GOD, this is 1000% times worst than the killing of a simple American Ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya, quick all a Seante investigation into this matter——sarc!
AlGore in cahoots with Gloria?
A bogus claim from a 25 year old case. This woman tried the same stunt when Mitt ran 4 years ago.
Now, will Trump release the works?
How does one (Romney, in this case) “make millions in the process” of giving a deposition in the divorce of two other people? The article is journalistic malpractice. Or would have been considered such back in the day of journalism....
Current TV? How much longer will they be in existence?
I got a feeling, if this lady gets this unsealed, she is a kook that only wants to drag Romney through the mud.
This is a joke. Everyone knows that the stock value would be assessed by a disinterested witness.
If Trump really had bathhouse Barry documentation then he wouldn’t have backed down for anything. What could there possibly be on Mitt that would cause Trump to back down if he had proof of Obama’s gay life?
“Current TV? How much longer will they be in existence?”
Until we all die from gorebull warming.
Current TV = The AlGore Network
Romney’s lawyer says he sees no reason to keep it sealed.
This story got more exposure to human eyes on last night’s FR thread than on Al’s barely breathing channel.
I don’t think he will release anything now. He moved himself back stage so that the Benghazi emails could be in the spotlight. It was the right thing to do out of respect for the four lives lost.
This is old news that has come up every time she has engaged lawyers to get more money. Old, old pitiful accusations.
The Dems are truly shameful.
the records for this case have been sealed, and participants are unable to discuss them.
Okay, so which is it? Is she unable to discuss it and if so why is she?
yea, I am sure nothing is there, but this lady is a kook, she is going to try her damndest to bring him into the mud.
I have no other course, but to vote for Obama!
These leftists are such douche bags.
Not necessarily. If All Red's charges are shown to be trivial and the press does not run with them, then there is no need to go nuclear on Obama and risk generating a backlash.
Isn’t it fascinating this woman, apparently a virulent hater of Mitt and Ann Romney (who btw also has MS), thinks Romney committed perjury. Yet with all her lawyers and money in this case, the judge obviously didn’t think Romney committed perjury.
I hate liberals and their bs. At some point long after this divorce, I gather the husband no longer was responsible for his rich ex wife’s healthcare. So?
They also like to say Romney testified, and then “weeks after the divorce case ended” the husband made a lot of money on his stock. Sounds like Romney testified then cashed in a week later, but I think the divorce went on for years. Years later they took the company public.
Current TV is a disgrace. Most people who are on it are certifiable. I accidentally clicked it on a few times, and the programs were outside the realm of normalcy and sanity. Sure hate to think that there are a few people who actually watch this and believe the programming to be honest and true.
Ummm. Wouldn’t a lesser valuation lead to MORE shares of stock being included in a divorce settlement.
Then again, when to idiot liberals ever pass Math 101?
If (and it’s a big if) Trump has anything, it’s almost certainly related to the documents he challenged Obama to release, not a divorce filing.
More likely, Trump is trying just to make himself useful by applying his own penchant for attention-whoring to overshadow Allred’s similar, but less-well-honed vanity.
Yes, that is Algor.
He’s still chasing ManBearPig together with PedoBear, I think.
Trump had nothing, it was just an offer to donate 5 million to a charity if Obama gave up all his papers.
Obama has used more than that just to hide his BC. Stupid idiot Trump stunt.
There’s just something about Obama in trouble leading to sealed divorce records being made public....
Now just where the heck have I heard that one before???
And... she wants TV to air a movie about her life. Perhaps Gloria will also be in the movie.
Trump made his announcement before debate three, contributing to O’Zero’s unease that night as he wondered what out of his past had gotten loose. Doing the $5 million dollar offer was a great business move. It will have the Libs wondering what is there that he won’t take the money for charity.
Heard that during the trial he stated that the Staples stock was over priced or overvalued or something in order to deny the ex any money from it and then when it went public............surprise, it was more valuable than stated. What a shocker huh? According to the dems, I guess she’s lucky that he didn’t cause her to get cancer and die. What a bunch of losers, liars and thieves.
Saw Mitt in Reno today. Great crowd. Some code pinkos on the way in worrying about him not providing mamograms or something. They were ignored by everybody.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
The Boston Globe is joining hands with its parent comoany the NYT to seek the delicious nuggets Ms. Allred promises is in the sealed records.
That’s why we read the Herald.
the woman's a nut.
She obviously thinks she looks regal like Obama when she does the chin in the air thing.
I bet you they are actually hoping the judge would rule against it.
I suppose you’re right - why risk a backlash at this point...hmmm
Yawn. He-said, she-said. Hey, anyone can claim just about anything. If there wasn't some points of contention there would not have been a divorce, court proceedings, etc. I'd be more suspicious if people came out of any court case, any divorce, and weren't angry and bitter and claiming the other side lied.
Makes MSNBC look like Huntley-Brinckley.
Another Dan Rather special report..........
This is one bitter hateful divorcee - no wonder the husband moved on.
The lawyer has a blood sucking leech for a client and the client has a blood sucking leech for a lawyer.
“OH MY GOD, this is 1000% times worst than the killing of a simple American Ambassador and 3 other Americans in Libya, quick all a Seante investigation into this mattersarc!”
The Old Media will certainly deem it more newsworthy than Libya. It’s biggest value to the dems and the Old Media will be pushing Libya out of the news cycle.
And wouldn't Ms. Allred just be twinkling and prancing if she got a part in Stemberg’s movie?
What a lot of vermin they are.
if freepers think Current TV is lefty...and it is
they should try:
LINK TV and FSTV....Free Speech TV
both on DISH
we are talking Mother Jones lefties...red diaper babies...Vanessa Regrave...Van Jones
far far left
David Corn is a Bircher to these nuts
I watch them to entertain myself
this is what the FARC watches...Sendero TV
Unfortunately, there are a lot of divorced women in this country who will only listen to the victimhood of the the ex-wife. Their bitter hearts will go out to her.
